In brief: Regular checkups

In the first two years of life, your child should be seeing his pediatrician very frequently for regular well child checkups.
During each of those checkups, your doctor will assess your child's various developmental milestones to inform you of his progress. A great resource online from the aap can be found at http://www.Healthychildren.Org/english/ages-stages/pages/default.Aspx.
